New Delhi: The condition of a 23-year-old woman who was gang-raped and thrown off a moving bus in the capital has "slightly deteriorated" and continues to be critical, authorities at the Safdarjung Hospital said Tuesday.
"The patient continues to be critical but her condition has slightly deteriorated… she is on ventilator support," BD Athani, medical superintendent, told IANS, adding that the victim tried to speak in the morning but could not.
"All options have been kept open including surgery… she is under close monitoring," he added.
The brutal rape and torture occurred Sunday night when the girl and her friend boarded a private bus at Munirka in south Delhi to go to Dwarka in west Delhi after watching a movie.
The woman was beaten up and raped by around six men inside the bus. Four accused have been arrested.
